This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Osnabrück.

The city of Osnabrück lies in Lower Saxony, Germany, and is the third-largest city in the state with a little over one hundred fifty thousand people. It shares the international airport with the nearby city of Münster and has solid bus, train, and flight connections with the major German cities.

Osnabrück is not too large, so it's perfect to explore with bicycle or city buses. If you're thinking about the second option, you might want to consider buying a special city card. It is sold at Tourist Information and allows you free rides on city buses, as well as free admission to various museums for a really reasonable price (family and two-day cards are also available).

As far as the Osnabrück hostel options go, there are not many choices. It is a good idea, however, to look for one close to the train station as most of the main sights are located nearby. Among them are the city hall or the Osnabrücker Rathaus; almost a thousand years old St. Peter's Cathedral; Waterloo Battle Memorial Heger Tor; Osnabrück Castle (now a University); historic defense station Vitischanze; the large Zoo; and several museums, including Felix Nussbaum Haus and the coal-industry-oriented Museum Industriekultur.

Even though the city of Osnabrück is not particularly famous worldwide and is pretty much overshadowed by the larger German cities, it is still worth visiting for a day or two. It offers a couple of interesting sights and a lovely old town center with some delightful old buildings.
